Spier Pinotage Signature Collection 2018

Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South AfricaThe pinotage originates in the Western Cape (Darling, Durbanville, and Paarl), 40-80 kilometres from the ocean. Post ferment, 20 percent of the wine is matured in French oak barrels for eight to 10 months, while the remainder ages in stainless steel tanks with French oak staves. The nose an attack has a generous, juicy, sweet undertone marked by black cherries, dark plums, and softish tannins. A classic SA match is pulled pork, but hamburgers are just as enticing.
